Leif Jason at Mastermynde Strategy provides a wide range of professional expertise in marketing, eCommerce, web strategy, and more. He has recently developed an online calendar of Comox Valley events that’s crowd-sourced, and community-curated. A key to the success of this community calendar are curators, people with a passion for specific event sectors (e.g. food, sports, music, business, etc).

If you’re interested in being a calendar curator please contact Leif directly via mastermynde.com. A draft is posted at weareyqqcommunitycalendar.ca (see the dropdown menu at “Categories” for all listings).

 

Note: This is the first Report on Tech & Media for the #WeAreYQQ Project. Rob wants to hear from people involved in the tech and media sectors in the region. Tell him about new and/or recently completed projects, new staff, awards, etc.
